the Han Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty were two prosperous empires that made all Chinese people put their thumbs up. Their strong national strength and domineering self-confidence once became synonymous with the power of Chinese history. However, to the great confusion of many people, there were serious local rebellions in the history of both the Han Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty. The Han Dynasty was the rebellion of the Wu and Chu Seven Kingdoms, and the Tang Dynasty was the an-Shi Rebellion. But also faced with the local rebellion, the Han Dynasty took only three months to easily overcome the rebellion, while the Tang Dynasty took eight years to quell the an-Shi Rebellion.

in the face of the crazy attack by the rebels of the seven countries of Wu and Chu, Emperor Jingdi of the Han Dynasty boldly appointed Zhou Yafu to quell the rebellion. Emperor Jingdi of the Han Dynasty had absolute trust in Zhou Yafu! at that time, Zhou Yafu and 36 generals led the main force of the Han army to fight against the rebels of Wu and Chu, Zhaozhu led one Han army to attack Zhao, and Luan Bu led another Han army to attack the rebellious countries in Qi.the rebels marched eastward and encountered resistance from King Liang's army in Shangqiu. The rebels of Wu and Chu attacked the city in turn, and King Liang's army suffered heavy losses and asked the imperial court for support. In the face of the anxious situation of the battlefield, Zhou Yafu boldly suggested to Han Jingdi: use King Liang's army to hold off the main rebel forces, look for opportunities to cut off rebel supplies, and then defeat the rebels. This method of war was approved by Emperor Jingdi of the Han Dynasty. Zhou Yafu staged a Jedi counterattack against the main force of Wu Chu rebels.at that time, King Liang's army fought to the death under the leadership of Han Anguo, Zhang Yu, and other generals, holding down a large number of rebels. Seeing that Liang Guochengchi could not be beaten down all the time, the main force of the rebels launched an attack on Zhou Yafu's Han army.Zhou Yafu does not have a direct conflict with the main rebel forces on the surface but secretly sends strange troops to the south. Today, the food supply of the rebels is cut off in Hongze, Jiangsu Province. the rebel soldiers were hungry and concentrated their forces to attack Zhou Yafu's barracks. Zhou Yafu made a diversion from east to west and ordered the troops in the northwest to strengthen their guard. Sure enough, the rebels were fooled and stormed the Han army in the northwest, but suffered heavy losses. Zhou Yafu immediately ordered the main force of the Han army to launch a siege from all directions and wipe out all the main forces of the rebels. Han cavalry, which had worked so hard in his lifetime, also dealt a heavy blow to the rebels in many battles.to tell you the truth, the key to Zhou Yafu's success in counterattacking the Jedi lies in the unity of monarchs and ministers. Han Jingdi, who was receptive to good advice, adopted Zhou Yafu's advice and trusted Zhou Yafu. Without interfering with the command of the front, Zhou Yafu could use troops boldly and finally win the war.first of all, Tang Xuanzong and Tang Suzong lacked strategic vision and missed many opportunities to defeat the rebels. for example, although the rebels attack fiercely, as long as the main force of the Tang army holds Tongguan, the rebels will not be able to take Chang'an. Sticking to Tongguan also bought time for the Tang army to concentrate their forces to fight the rebellion.however, in the specific strategy of sticking to Tongguan, Tang Xuanzong's "coquettish operation" is incomprehensible. At first, Tang Dynasty generals Gao Xianzhi and Feng Changqing advocated sticking to Tongguan, but they were later killed by Tang Xuanzong.after Gao Xianzhi and Feng Changqing were killed, Tang Xuanzong asked GE Shuhan to stick to Tongguan. GE Shuhan, who led the 200000 Tang army to participate in the war, advocated sticking to the natural danger of Tongguan and cooperating with Guo Ziyi and Li Guangbi to lead the main force of the Tang army to wipe out Shi Siming rebels in today's Hebei and Shanxi provinces. But Tang Xuanzong still clung to his own opinions, and Prime Minister Yang Guozhong, with the acquiescence of Xuanzong, demanded that Tang Army go out of Tongguan and fight the rebels under the command of GE Shuhan, resulting in the annihilation of more than 100,000 Tang troops by the rebels, the loss of Tongguan and the emergency in Chang'an.Tang Xuanzong was extremely confused in his later years. The emperor who created the prosperous era of the Tang Dynasty and the Kaiyuan Dynasty pushed the Tang Dynasty into an irreparable abyss.after the fall of Chang'an, Tang Xuanzong fled to the west with his imperial concubine and minister eunuch. after the change of Ma Guipo on the way, Prince Li Heng led a group of men to bid farewell to Tang Xuanzong and went north to Lingwu. In July 756, Li Heng became emperor in Lingwu. He was Tang Suzong. Tang Suzong had the desire to quell the rebellion, but like his father Xuanzong, he lacked strategic vision.at that time, Li Mi suggested to Tang Suzong that Tang Jun Guo Ziyi and Li Guangbi would fight the rebels in Hedong and Li Guangbi in Taiyuan and deplete the main forces of the rebels. When the conditions were ripe, Tang Jun directly attacked Fanyang, the rebel nest, and finally attacked Changan Luoyang. According to Li Pei's strategy, Tang Jun was able to quell the an-Shi Rebellion in less than two years.in the beginning, Tang Suzong quelled the rebellion according to Li Pei's suggestion. However, when the Tang army won several great victories and the main forces of the Tang army in Hexi Anxi gathered to fight Fan Yang, Tang Suzong deviated from Li Pei's suggestion. Li Pei wanted Tang Jun to fight the rebel nest Fanyang, but Tang Suzong asked Tang Jun to fight Changan and Luoyang. it was this disagreement that led to the counter-insurgency war that Tang Jun should have ended in two years for eight years.the attack on Chang'an maybe for the legitimacy of Tang Suzong's throne. However, when the Tang army attacked Chang'an, the main force of the rebels remained, and it was easy for the Tang army to form a fierce tug-of-war with the rebels. If the Tang army concentrates its forces on attacking Fan Yang, the rebel lair will be directly captured by the Tang army, and the morale of the rebels will be dealt a heavy blow. therefore, Tang Suzong's strategic shortsightedness delayed the an-Shi Rebellion of the Tang Dynasty for several years before it ended.secondly, Tang Jun is very distrustful of generals and ministers.Han Jingdi has great trust in Zhou Yafu, but what about Tang Xuanzong? Trust in the warrior minister is almost zero. Gao Xianzhi and Feng Changqing made meritorious deeds in guarding Tongguan, Tang XuanzongHe listened to the slanderers and killed two generals who stuck to Tongguan. Guo Ziyi and Li Guangbi fought hard at the front and made meritorious service for Datang. Tang Suzong sent eunuchs to the front to monitor Guo Ziyi and Li Guangxi. This extreme mistrust between monarchs and officials greatly consumed the efficiency of the Tang Dynasty to quell the rebellion, and left great trauma to the monarchs and courtiers of the Tang Dynasty.A few years after the an-Shi Rebellion, the famous general who quelled the rebellion, Bugu Hualien, could not stand the suspicion of the court to launch a rebellion. to tell you the truth, Bugu Huaien's rebellion was completely forced by the Tang emperor's policy of immortal suspicion.all in all, although Han Jingdi made mistakes in the early days, he corrected them when he knew his mistakes, used Zhou Yafu to quell the rebellion, and adopted to let the Great Han enter a new prosperous era. Tang Xuanzong Tang Suzong and other emperors suspected that military generals and even killed meritorious warriors did not listen to the advice of ministers, and ran the country capriciously according to their ideas, which finally pushed Datang into the abyss.therefore, the opposite performance of the Han and Tang empires in the face of rebellion tells us a truth: although leaders' decision-making ability is important, leaders can also determine the direction of an enterprise at certain times by following good advice and listening to employees' opinions or suggestions.
